The Torah and Civilization

ישעיהו פרק ב פסוק ג

וְהָלְכוּ עַמִּים רַבִּים וְאָמְרוּ לְכוּ וְנַעֲלֶה אֶל הַר יְקֹוָק אֶל בֵּית אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב וְיֹרֵנוּ מִדְּרָכָיו וְנֵלְכָה בְּאֹרְחֹתָיו כִּי מִצִּיּוֹן תֵּצֵא תוֹרָה וּדְבַר יְקֹוָק מִירוּשָׁלִָם:

And many nations will say “Let us go up to the Mount of the L-rd, to House of G-d of Jacob, and they will teach us His ways and we will go in His paths,” because from Zion will the Torah go forth and the word of G-d from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:3)

Vaccines: No one questions the importance of Vaccines for eliminating infectious diseases. The question is rather the quantity of vaccinations given young children and the increasing body-burden of aluminum. How do large concentrations of aluminum affect the nervous system? The refusal of the Pharmaceutical Industry and the CDC to acknowledge this problem is equivalent to putting a stumbling block in harms way. Here are five seminal presentations from eminent microbiologists . Click Here.
